August Main Book Discussion, on St. Charles: "THE SECRET AGENT" by Joseph Conrad

Join us Saturday, August 16 at 11am at Krewe du Brew coffee house for a discussion of the 1907 novel "THE SECRET AGENT" by Joseph Conrad. About 300 pages.

In a corrupt London underworld of criminals, terrorists, and fanatics, Mr. Verloc is assigned to plant a bomb. The tragic repercussions for his family show how Conrad's ironic voice is concerned not with politics but with the terrible fates of ordinary people.


Used copies on for a penny before shipping. $2 on Kindle. Available in many library branches.


For more info, contact Guy Henoumont at[masked] or at [masked].
